Last Edited:

Rowan University celebrated student success on Friday, April 21st, at its 20th annual S.T.E.M. Symposium.

Nearly 500 students and facility members from 15 different science, technology, engineering, and mathematics majors and departments filled the school's Enyon Ballroom to showcase the hard work students put in for their research projects.

"For the students involved, this is ... a chance for them to show what they've been doing," said Gregory Hecht, associate professor in Rowan's Department of Biological Sciences. "A lot of students are working late at night in the lab or devoting their weekends out in the field to get data and they like that this is a chance to show off what they've done, what they got."

On display were more than 175 projects that covered a variety of topics such as surgical robots for femur fractures, disease detection, and prevention, and 3D-printed orthopedic implants.
